As a self-administered site (not directly run by the City Council) Ash Road Allotments depends entirely upon volunteers to keep the site running. Because of this we hold regular 'Work Parties', where we ask plot-holders to give some time to help with a task to maintain or improve the site.
Below is a 'Work Party Calendar' for 2020, with Work Parties held on the first Thursday and third Sunday of each month:
May Sunday 16th
June Thursday 3rd Sunday 20th
July Thursday 1st Sunday 18th
August Thursday 5th Sunday 15th
September Thursday 2nd Sunday 19th
October Thursday 7th Sunday 17th
November Thursday 4th Sunday 21st
December Thursday 2nd Sunday 19th
Sunday Work Parties will run from 10am-Noon (with a coffee break at 11am)
Thursday Work Parties will run from 2pm-4pm (with a coffee break at 3pm)
Final confirmation of each Work Party (and more information about the task) will be sent by email and posted on our Facebook page a few days before each event. It may well be that on some days the task required can be completed in shorter time.
